A rich and creamy Greek condiment that also happens to be dairy-free. This easy to make vegan tzatziki features avocado for a luscious dip that you can put on pita, salads, sandwiches, kebabs, and more!
An Extra Creamy Dairy-Free Dip
This vegan tzatziki is taken to another level with the addition of avocado. This fruit (yep, it’s not a vegetable!) is known as a healthy fat that supports heart health as well as improving digestion.
So not only does the avocado make it a beautiful green color but it also provides important nutrients for you to live your best life.
What is Tzatziki?
Greek cuisine is known for its freshness and this dip is no exception. Tzatziki is light, cooling, and just oh-so-nutritious.
Tzatziki is traditionally made with yogurt but for this plant-based version, you simply exchange it for a dairy-free version of your choosing.
Next, fresh herbs and lemon are added for brightness with just a little zest. But the best part? This condiment goes with just about anything!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- Dairy-free Yogurt – Tangy and full of protein, vegan yogurt is the perfect base for an amazing condiment.
- Avocado – Rich and nutty avocado adds fiber and healthy fats.
- Lemon Juice – A squeeze of lemon juice gives some tartness but also keeps the avocado from turning brown.
- Cucumber – Grated cucumber with the moisture removed brings the texture and amazing crunch.
- Garlic – This dip isn’t just tangy it’s also savory with generous amounts of grated garlic.
- Dill – Herbaceous fresh dill gives pops of fresh flavor as you dip.
FAQ & Creamy Vegan Avocado Tzatziki Tips:
Is there a substitute for the fresh dill?
- Absolutely. Feel free to substitute chopped parsley for the dill or you can also use dry herbs as well.
How long will this tzatziki keep?
- This avocado tzatziki keeps remarkably well for up to 4-5 days. But even better, it won’t brown like guacamole because of the dairy-free yogurt and lemon juice.
Mix It Up
- Love extra oomph? Try adding some additional dry spices to your tzatziki. Oregano, parsley, basil, or extra dill would all work great.
- Prefer it chunky? Chop up the cucumber very fine instead of grating it for a chunkier consistency.
- This cooling condiment works great on pita, sandwiches, salads, or kebabs. However, you can also use it for dipping raw vegetables on a charcuterie board.
